The fourth grade text begins to concentrate narrowly only on the United States. It begins with a geographic overview then provides a brief historical summary.  The remaining chapters cover our government and economy as well as  the U.S. by region, going more in-depth on the geography and climate of each region, highlighting important resources that come from each, examining settlement and growth, and concluding with a snapshot of the region at present.
